User with this ability either is or can mimic/transform into tardigrade, a type of micro-animal with specimens sighted all over the world in many different habitats. Tardigrades are small and harmless to humans but they are best known as some of the most durable organisms ever discovered.

They have been known to withstand extreme temperatures from near absolute zero to above the boiling point of water, radiation several times the lethal dose for humans, 30 years without food or water, tremendous pressure and even the vacuum of space. Users of this power would possess similar traits.
